Nonmonoexponential diffusion behavior has been previously reported to exist in some biological tissues, making quantification of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) indices dependent on diffusion sensitivity of b-value. This study aims to investigate the effect of b-value in revealing postinfarct myocardial microstructural remodeling in ex vivo hearts. DTI scans were performed on heart samples 1, 3, 5, and 7 days after infarction induction as well as intact controls with b-values of 500 to 2500s/mm… CONTINUE READING
